Learning Security The Hard Way

Benjamin Carroll (@taco_pirate) is an employee at a large utility in Michigan. Starting from modding Xbox’s at a young age, building websites in his free time, and hacking people for fun, he finally found himself in cyber security. He is now an advocate for cyber security education, as well as educating himself in every aspect of information security.

Are you a student in the cyber security field and often find yourself wondering what that transition into industry will be like? Do you feel prepared to take on the challenges of a real blue team? The answer is no, you aren’t; and I’ll tell you why. As well as what you need to do to prepare yourself.

Injecting Security into the SDLC

Mark Good

Approximately 86% of all attacks are against application weaknesses. Yet less than 35% of security spending is on application design and development.
Without the inclusion of security during the requirements, design, build, and verification phases of development, security vulnerabilities can be inadvertently or maliciously introduced into the production environment. In this talk you will learn why it’s important to include security throughout the SDLC, what activities should be performed, and where in the SDLC to perform these activities.

Misec Southfield Meetup August 11th

David Schaefer is presenting Sheep, the Shepard, History, and Eugenics – A historical reminder on why  personal privacy matters when it comes to the government and corporations in the digital age.

Human history has dictated that we can’t trust our governments,  corporations, and other entities to watch out for our personal best  interests.  We will look at the Eugenics movement as a reminder of the  things governments can accomplish when they collect data, and then  continue our journey towards the Nazi regime and how they so efficiently  tracked humans via machines.
This all plays into the current age of  big data.  This talk touch base on things that went wrong, and some of  the ways we still have power to correct the current issues by building  up political and technical defenses.

This month’s lightning talk is by Paul Snyder, on diagramming threat flows.

Title: Defense in Depth

Defense in Depth: We all have heard some security professionals describe defense-in-depth as “dead.” This could not be farther from the truth. The truth of the matter is that the art and science of defense-in-depth should be expanded in many organizations. We’ll also discuss the concept of Defense in Depth and introduce you to the Sliding Scale of Cyber Security.
